LSE (BSc in Finance) vs NYU Stern vs UMich (Possibly Ross) vs UVA vs BC Carroll

Subscribe

I got into all of the schools listed above. I’m trying to decide which one to go. My long-term goals are working at a buy-side firm (especially HF/PE) as soon as possible or starting my own.

I feel that I’m currently between the first three, still waiting my decision for Ross. I feel like LSS is the most prestigious but it’s in London and I’d like to stay in the US. NYU Stern seems to have a really good curriculum but Ross might have better placement into both IB and HF/PE.

Social aspects are considered but not as important.

Based on the quality of education and career opportunities, which school do you think would benefit me more in the long run. (The cost is roughly the same for all)
